    Yoko Ono has shown her support for her depiction in new Beatles documentary, Get Back, which fans believe dispel claims that she was responsible for The Fab Four's break-up. The Japanese artist, who was married to John Lennon from 1969 until his murder in 1980, has long been blamed for breaking up the iconic band - comprised of John, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr - and for 'ruining' her husband. The new Disney+ documentary covers the making of the Beatles' 1970 album Let It Be, which had the working title of Get Back, with fans praising Yoko for her 'unassuming' nature in the film - with Yoko showing her gratitude by retweeting a story about fans' reaction.

    When Peter Jackson turned the Lord Of The Rings books into a blockbuster film trilogy, he ended up with three Oscars. But the director has told of his disappointment that the Fab Four didn’t get there first.

              more   Four men -known as the Groveland Four – who were falsely accused of raping a white woman in 1949 have been posthumously exonerated. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and the three-member cabinet also posthumously pardoned the men in 2019. Prosecutors motioned to vacate the convictions of Charles Greenlee and Walter Irvin and the charges against Ernest Thomas and Samuel Shepherd. A judge has approved the State’s motion to dismiss the convictions of the Groveland Four. This overturns their wrongful and fabricated convictions from over 72 years ago.

    ALBERTVILLE, MINN. (WCCO) — With hunting season underway, an Albertville marksman has a warning to all hunters after a grisly accident. It all started for Wayne Roden in Emily as a trip to remember. READ MORE: Prior Lake School Board Meeting Disrupted As Fallout Over Racist Viral Video Continues“It was like a 180-pound buck. It was a pretty nice deer,” Roden said. But it was followed by an incident Roden only wishes he could forget. “We love venison and, you know, take care of it ourselves instead of paying someone,” he said. He pulled out an old grinder and started packing in his deer meat. “It just grabbed the tip of my middle finger and took the whole hand, and I had to rip it out because it [was] just so fast,” Roden said. A neighbor and former Army medic ran over and applied a tourniquet to his arm before paramedics arrived.

    During three decades of nearly uninterrupted excellence, there were so many Atlanta Braves teams that seemed more championship worthy than this one. The 1993 squad chased down the San Francisco Giants to win one of baseball’s last great division races. The ’96 group wiped out the New York pinstripers in the first two games of the World Series at Yankee Stadium. The ’97, ‘98 and ‘99 teams all won more that 100 games. Yet it was these Braves — who didn’t climb above .500 until early August, who endured a devastating rash of injuries and other setbacks, who had to wheel and deal ahead of the trade deadline to assemble a whole new outfield — who finally brought the tortured A-T-L another title. No one could’ve seen it coming. Well, except for those players dancing in the center of Minute Maid Park early Wednesday morning. “These guys never gave up on themselves,” manager Brian Snitker said. “We used a lot of guys, we lost a lot of pieces over the course of the summer. It was just the next man...

    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — The Patriots absolutely walloped the Jets on Sunday, to the tune of a 54-13 final score. And now we’re going to run through the positives and negatives from a Patriots perspective. OK, just kidding. There won’t be any negatives. Sure, you could harp on … a missed PAT … or the one drive that didn’t produce points … or, uhh … 95 penalty yards? But you’d be nuts to do so. So instead of the traditional Four Ups, Four Downs, here is a collection of as many Ups from this down as possible. Mac Jones In his last game against the Jets, he didn’t have to do too much to earn a win. So he didn’t. This time out, he also didn’t have to do too much, but he did a whole lot. Jones was 24-for-36 for 307 yards, with two touchdowns and no interceptions. He also ran for 13 yards to convert a third-and-10 a few plays before throwing one of his two touchdowns. You know it was a good one for...

    FLORIDA cops didn't know Brian Laundrie was missing until four days after he vanished despite his family's lawyer insisting he contacted the FBI immediately. The timeline of Laundrie's disappearance was thrust back into the spotlight this week after his remains were discovered at the Carlton Reserve, one month after his fiancee Gabby Petito's body was found in Wyoming. 3Florida cops didn't know Brian Laundrie was missing until four days after he vanishedCredit: Social Media - Refer to source Laundrie family attorney Steve Bertolino was asked to clarify the timeline after questions were reignited by speculation over how and when Laundrie died.

    San Francisco Giants flamethrower Camilo Doval lost control of his fastball against the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 5. Gabe Kapler called upon Doval to retire the side in the eighth inning, and keep the game tied a one run apiece. Unfortunately for the Giants, that was not the case, as Doval never had complete control of his fastball. Doval threw nothing but sliders to Cody Bellinger, despite the fact that he owns a fastball that can hit triple-digits. This is after he put a runner on courtesy of that fastball, and then Gavin Lux joined said runner on with a single off Doval’s main pitch. Doval clearly lost confidence in that pitch, which is why he went with four straight sliders to the struggling Bellinger.San Francisco Giants: Doval goes with wrong strategy against Cody BellingerBellinger has struggled to catch up to high-velocity pitches all season, making it all the more odd that Doval went with four pitches less than 90 MPH to attempt to get him out. A visit to the mound didn’t do Doval much good, as he...

    This Thursday, the House Committee on Oversight and Reform held a hearing on the election audit in Arizona's Maricopa County. According to a press release, the hearing is being called "to assess the election 'audit' in Maricopa County, Arizona, conducted by Cyber Ninjas, Inc., and how this and similar audits undermine public confidence in elections and threaten our democracy." During the hearing, Ohio GOP. Rep. Jim Jordan took an opportunity to slam his Democratic colleagues for trying to hold Donald Trump and his allies accountable for the so-called "Big Lie" -- false claims about the 2020 election. "How about all the lies the Democrats have told us over the last couple of years," Jordan said, adding those "lies" include the narrative about Russian collusion and "peaceful" racial justice protests, among others. "Democrats told us COVID didn't start in a Chinese lab," he continued. "Nope, didn't start there -- it was a bat to a pangolin, to a hippopotamus, to Joe Rogan and we get bit -- no, no, no, Democrats for four years told us the 2016 election...
    LIVERPOOL have reportedly been given a huge boost in their pursuit of RB Salzburg's wonderkid Karim Adeyemi. The 19-year-old striking sensation will leave Salzburg next summer, opening the door for the Reds to make a swoop for the youngster, according to Sky Sports HD. 1Adeyemi could be on his way to Liverpool next summerCredit: Getty But Jurgen Klopp's side will have their work cut out convincing the German not to return to his homeland, with Bundesliga trio Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig also vying for his signature. Adeyemi won't come cheap for the Reds either, and they'll have to meet Salzburg's £34million value for their teen phenomenon who's already scored 11 goals in 16 games in all competitions this season. Bayern could have a slight advantage in negotiations as Adeyemi began his career at the club before he was shown the door for bad behaviour aged 16. Tension between his parents and the German giants were also a major factor in Adeyemi's dismissal. Reflecting on where it all went wrong at Bayern, Adeyemi said previously: "It remains to...
    She was one of just a handful of high-level staffers to last the entire four years working in former President Donald Trump’s White House. On Monday, George Stephanopoulos wanted to know why. In an interview on Good Morning America, Stephanopoulos quizzed former White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham on why she waited four years before speaking out against the ex-president in the form of a scathing tell-all. “You detail four years of toxicity, cultural and casual dishonesty,” Stephanopoulos said. “The question is, what took you so long?” Grisham conceded that Stephanopoulos was asking “a fair question” She argued that she went into the Trump campaign “a true believer and a true loyalist” and that she didn’t get a true sense of what was happening until she transitioned from Melania Trump’s press secretary to the president’s. “I spent a huge amount of time on the East Wing,” Grisham said. “And so I was almost shielded sometimes from a lot of the toxic nature of the West Wing, and the administration. When I went to the West Wing is when I actually...
    When I was young it was considered healthy to beat the living daylights out of your children on a regular basis. So in many ways my upbringing in Glasgow in the 1940s and 1950s was no better or worse than anyone else’s. I was born in a tenement building near the city centre in November 1942, during the Second World War.  That’s the only date you’re getting out of me, because it’s the only one I can remember. At the time, my dad was away in the RAF fighting in Burma and India. Our little two-room flat was a bit gloomy: I remember an alcove bed, a kitchen table and a sideboard with a drawer that was my crib when I was a baby.  Scottish comic Billy Connolly with his wife Pamela Stephenson, circa 1990 Billy Connolly in favourite racing car tee-shirt with Aunt Mona on holiday to Rothesay in 1954 There was no bathroom and no hot water: my older sister Florence washed both of us standing up in the kitchen.

    A WOMAN has been slammed for rating the FOUR engagement rings she has been given from previous failed relationships.  In a TikTok video, she showed off the numerous sparklers she has been given, and scored them out of 10 with her opinion of them. 5A woman posted on TikTok rating the four engagements rings she was givenCredit: Facebook 5Her first proposal didn’t come with a ring so she gave it zeroCredit: Facebook 5She did get a ring for her second proposal, but it didn't rank highlyCredit: Facebook Her first proposal didn’t come with a ring so she gave it zero, and explained she was “young, dumb, and broke” and said yes without a diamond.

The third ring was slammed as “gaudy af”, and the woman gave it three out of 10. Thankfully her fourth engagement ring was appreciated more than the rest, as it got eight...
    HOUSTON (AP) — Firefighters found two adults and two children dead of apparent gunshot wounds after extinguishing a blaze at a home in Houston on Sunday. There weren’t any signs of forced entry at the house in the southwest of the city and the fire, which was reported shortly after 8 a.m., may have been an attempt to destroy evidence or disguise something at the scene, Police Chief Troy Finner said during a news conference. The dead were adults in their 50s and children who were apparently in the 10 to 13 age range, Finner said. He didn’t identify the dead, saying police hadn’t yet notified their family. He said investigators believe the shootings were an act of domestic violence, but he didn’t say why they think that. “It’s real sad,” he said. “When it’s innocent kids, it’s even more upsetting.” Copyright © 2021 The Associated Press.

    Cecily Myart-Cruz is the head of the United Teachers for Los Angeles  A left-wing L.A. teacher's union boss who wanted to keep schools closed due to COVID but limit Zoom classes to just four hours a day now says it doesn't matter if kids missed out on traditional education like learning times tables, because they learned about BLM riots instead.  Cecily Myart-Cruz - who in the past claimed reopening schools was racist and who insists education is 'political - made the comments in an interview with Los Angeles Magazine.  The ultra-woke teacher is the head of The United Teachers Los Angeles which represents 33,000 teachers from the L.A. Unified School District.  Instead of focusing just on issues that affect parents, teachers and students in L.A. schools, she has gone to bat on issues like the Israel Palestine conflict, Medicare for all and protesting California's eviction laws.  Most notably, she has fought Gavin Newsom on his plan to reopen schools last April. She said that it was racist towards communities where COVID-19 was more rampant and those were typically minority or...
    New York (CNN Business)Three Chick-fil-A locations in Alabama and one in Georgia have closed their dining rooms, citing challenges in hiring the workers they need. One of these, in Calera, Alabama, has also stopped curbside delivery and is limiting its catering ordering. Another, in Madison, Alabama, said it would stop curbside and mobile carryout. The restaurants represent just a fraction of Chick-fil-A's restaurants in North America. There are over 2,600 Chick-fil-A locations in the United States and Canada, most of which are owned by franchise operators.But the situation described by the locations is representative of the experience of many restaurants across the country. Operators have been struggling to hire as workers turn to other careers and stay away from stressful restaurant jobs where they have to deal with frustrated customers and may be exposed to the coronavirus. Four Chick-fil-A restaurants have said that staffing shortages are affecting their operations. In April, May and June the rate of quits per share of employment in the accommodation and food services sector, which includes restaurants, held steady at 5.7%, according to seasonally...
    AN ANTI-VAX husband and wife have died two weeks apart with Covid-19, orphaning four kids. And on their deathbed, they pleaded to their family that their children get vaccinated. 3Lydia and Lawrence leave behind twins, 18, children aged 16 and 11Credit: Newsflash Lydia and Lawrence Rodriguez from La Marque in Texas, were both unvaccinated and sceptical of the new jabs, according to Lydia’s cousin Dottie Jones. Dottie said: “Before she got intubated, one of the last things she told her sister was 'please make sure my children get vaccinated’. “They didn't believe in vaccines, and you try to talk to them, and she just didn't like that. Didn't trust it, I guess. “She would be there for her kids right now if she had been vaccinated." Lydia, 42, was hospitalised with Covid-19 over a month ago before dying with the virus on Monday.

    Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice wrote in a new op-ed that the past four U.S. presidents share blame for the crisis in Afghanistan, adding that they all made mistakes that have culminated in the Taliban retaking the country this week.  "The past years in Afghanistan have been difficult for every president, our armed forces, our allies and our country. The sacrifices of those who served — and those who died — will forever sear our national memory," Rice wrote in the Washington Post. "Each of us who held positions of authority over those years made mistakes — not because we didn’t try or were heedless of the challenges. But the United States could not afford to ignore the rogue state that harbored those who attacked us on 9/11. The time will come to assess where we failed — and what we achieved."  Rice worked as secretary of State under former president George W. Bush, who oversaw a blistering bombing campaign in Afghanistan following the 9/11 attacks as U.S. forces hunted for Osama bin Laden. She wrote in Wednesday's op-ed that an "unfair narrative" is emerging in the wake of...

    It sounded far-fetched from the very beginning.  An Alaskan miner, cornered in the brutal wilderness to stand-off against a hungry brown bear for four days before being rescued by a Coast Guard's helicopter that happened to be passing by, without a scratch on him. But that's what Richard Jessee, a gold hunter who was rescued last week in Nome, Alaska, said happened to him.   The unlikely story gathered attention from the national press and Jessee told proudly about hiding from the animal after it crushed his ATV and tossed his phone in a river.  Now, however, locals are questioning his version of events after going to the cabin where he was rescued but finding no evidence of the days-long battle he described.   Other local miners who were interviewed by The Nome Nugget went to the cabin where Jessee was rescued but found no bear tracks.  They did however find the ATV and attached trailer that Jessee said the bear pushed into the water.  On top of it was a packet of bacon in a cooler that was untouched.  'There’s just no...
    TOKYO (AP) — Their scrapbooks and trophy cases are filled with memories from Final Fours, national titles, All-America honors and even some impressive showings in the pros. Now, they have Olympic gold medals to go with all that. The U.S. team of Stefanie Dolson, Allisha Gray, Kelsey Plum and Jackie Young took an early lead against the team from Russia, then held on for an 18-15 victory Wednesday to win the title in the debut of 3-on-3 basketball at the Olympics. “In 10 years, we’ll look back and say ‘Damn, we did that,’” Dolson said. “Hopefully we started something.” Dolson did the honors during the medals ceremony, taking the gold prizes and placing them over her teammates’ necks. They stood with hands over hearts during the national anthem. Their celebration couldn’t beat Latvia’s, though. After Karlis Lasmanis drained a shot from behind the arc to close out the men’s final, he found himself at the bottom of a four-man dogpile. The game-winner gave his country a 21-18 victory over the Russians and its first medal of the Games. Bronze medals...
    CNN reporter Jamie Gangel on Tuesday said that the first day of the Capitol riot commission was not a good one for former President Donald Trump. In discussing Trump's mindset, Gangel said that the former president must have been particularly angry that he didn't even have longtime ally Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) to make a scene while defending him. "Donald Trump is not happy," she said. "What happened today is what he didn't want to happen. He did not want any committee, and to your point, he didn't have Jim Jordan or any other allies there fighting back or pushing back." She also said it must have stung for Trump watching uniformed Capitol police officers trash him and his political movement. "It also was devastating because four policemen in uniform, four heroes, sat there and in devastating, excruciating detail, talked about how Donald Trump supporters were racist, were violent, were trying to stop democracy," she said. "This was a bad day for Donald Trump." Watch the video below. Reporter says Trump was miserable watching Capitol cops trash him...

Ashton, 43, and Mila, 37, admitted they only give daughter Wyatt, six, and son Dimitri, four, a scrub when they look physically grubby.  And even when the youngsters are allowed a quick dip in the tub, they hardly ever use soap because they don't want to dry their delicate skin out.  Mila and Ashton also revealed that they avoid using soap on their own bodies too.   They discussed their family's approach to hygiene on the latest Armchair Expert podcast, which is hosted by Dax Shepard and Monica Padman.  Candid: Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis admitted they only give daughter Wyatt, six, and son Dimitri, four, a scrub when they look physically grubby; the family are pictured in 2017 At one point Dax told Monica that she should not be excising the natural oil on your skin with a bar of soap every day.  In response Monica replied: 'I can't believe I am in the minority here of washing my whole body in the shower....
    Simone Biles has opened up about her bittersweet Olympic trials experience, admitting that she felt 'sad' she had not given her 'best performance' after breaking down in tears when she suffered a rare fall from the beam.  Despite the uncharacteristic mistake, Simone, 24, sailed through the trials in the top all-around spot, finishing the second day of competition more than two points clear of her second-place teammate Suni Lee, and automatically earning herself a place on the four-person team for Tokyo.  But while Sunday's trial ended on a high note, Simone confessed during an interview with the Today show's Hoda Kotb on Monday that she is 'sad' she didn't give the same flawless performance that she has proven herself to be capable of time and time again.  'I was really happy, but I was sad because everybody came out here to watch us and I didn't give them my best performance,' she admitted while celebrating the team's selection alongside the other five female gymnasts who will join her at the Olympics next month.  Emotional: Gymnast Simone Biles opened up...

Nick, Zach, Nigel quickly decided to head to Yale, while Aaron hesitated, considering Stanford before electing to join his brothers in New Haven. But even though they were at the same university, the four didn’t share fields of study, or living spaces. In fact, only two had a course together, when Aaron and Nigel ended up in “Psychology and the Good...

    Prior to Tuesday night, Clayton Kershaw’s last appearance in Minute Maid Park was a nightmare. The Astros couldn’t hit the left-handed ace without a trash can. In nearly eight innings of work, Kershaw made a point — while the 2017 Astros were a great team, they had a technological advantage, one that delayed the Dodgers World Series ascent for another three years. Tuesday night was personal. Six strikeouts and just four hits and one earned run later, Kershaw can leave Houston a winner, the feat which was stolen from him just a few years prior. Kershaw didn’t comment on his return to Houston prior to the game. He went about his business, per usual, as he has for over a decade of big-league ball. It was Game 5 against the Astros that represented the pinnacle of his past postseason struggles. In many ways, it haunted him until that weight was lifted last fall.Dodgers: Clayton Kershaw is taking the high road in HoustonKershaw didn’t trash talk the Astros before the teams battled at Minute Maid Park, but that didn’t stop his...
    More On: new york islanders Islanders playing waiting game with injured goalie ‘very close’ to return Islanders know this is far from over after OT thriller: ‘We didn’t do anything’ Islanders rookie goalie delivers in clutch performance Kyle Palmieri’s OT winner lifts Islanders in Game 1 Special teams were always expected to play a role in the Islanders-Penguins first-round series, considering how both teams measure up against one another. Pittsburgh owned a top-four power play during the regular season, while the Isles ranked 21st in the league. The Islanders posted a solid 83.7 percent penalty kill, with the Penguins sitting in the bottom five. Neither team capitalized on the power play in Game 1, but the Islanders whiffed on a four-minute man-advantage at a crucial time that could’ve saved them a trip to overtime. When Jeff Carter earned a double-minor for high-sticking Brock Nelson at 12:25 of the second period, the Isles were granted their lone power play of the game while trailing 2-1. But the team spent most of the four-minute man-advantage flailing through the neutral zone and...

    Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani’s Sweetest Relationship Moments 7 Ways To Practice Financial Self-Care In 1999, Nike produced an amazing commercial featuring Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Mark McGwire, which it billed “Chicks Dig the Long Ball.” Anthony “Rumble” Johnson would tell you that everyone digs a knockout.

Hopefully, everybody gets to see what they’ve been missing for the last four years. I’ve gotten a ton of messages and [heard] in person the same thing: They don’t get knockouts like they used to.” Johnson will fight Augusto in Bellator’s light heavyweight Grand Prix instead of Yoel Romero, who was pulled from the fight last week because of an undisclosed medical issue.

    Four of the seven North Carolina sheriff's deputies placed on administrative leave following the fatal shooting of Andrew Brown Jr., have been reinstated after body-camera footage revealed they did not fire their weapons, officials said Thursday.  Pasquotank County Sheriff Tommy Wooten made the announcement in a statement in which he revealed the names of all seven of the deputies.  ANDREW BROWN JR. SHOT IN 'BACK OF THE HEAD,' DEPUTIES CARRIED OUT 'EXECUTION,' ATTORNEYS, FAMILY CLAIM "After reviewing the preliminary conclusions of the independent investigators conducting the internal review, and after carefully examining the body camera footage of the incident with my own staff, it’s obvious that four of the deputies never fired their weapons and deserve to be reinstated to active duty," Wooten said. "More investigation is necessary into the three deputies who did fire their weapons and they will remain on administrative leave pending completion of the internal investigation and/or the criminal investigation being conducted by the State Bureau of Investigation." The announcement came a day after a judge rejected a request to publicly release the bodycam footage but said the Brown family...
    MAURA Higgins has revealed her periods stopped for four months after her “obsession” with exercise led to an unhealthy weight loss. The Love Island star, 30, became “so thin” that her boyfriend Chris Taylor and her mum stepped in and helped her achieve more balance when it comes to food and exercise, as she feared it could affect her chances of having kids in the future.  4Maura Higgins has revealed she became obsessed with exerciseCredit: Instagram Speaking to the MailOnline, she admitted: 'It got to a stage where it was actually affecting my periods; I lost my period for four months.

    A couple got married four years after they first met without the husband ever seeing his wife's face because of her niqaab. Mubina Mustafa, 28, from Pickering, Ontario, and Mehdi Isa Arathoon, 27, were in the same class at university, but he was a Christian and she was a Muslim, so even helping each other with their studies was frowned upon by their strict families. It wasn't until he began dating someone else, that Mubina - who had never even been friends with a man who wasn't family - realised she had feelings for her former classmate.  The couple couldn't date unless they were going to marry, and they couldn't marry unless he became Muslim. So smitten Medhi took a leap of faith and converted to Islam and proposed to Mubina two months later. It wasn't until after the ceremony that Mehdi saw underneath the niqaab - or face veil - Mubina wears in front of everyone, apart from her husband and family. Mubina Mustafa, 28, and Mehdi Isa Arathoon, 27, from Pickering, Ontario ,married each other despite the fact...
    Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors has responded to criticism over her property empire saying it is 'categorically untrue' and 'incredibly dangerous' to suggest she may have used any organization funds for her homes. Cullors described the scrutiny over her $3 million empire of four homes as a 'racist and sexist' attack by the 'right-wing media' in an interview with Marc Lamont Hill for Black News Tonight on Thursday. The 37-year-old, who set up BLM with Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi back in 2013, broke down in tears as she revealed she has 'spent the last week with security' after her homes were first pictured in the media.   She also shielded criticism from some on the left who have questioned whether her ownership of four homes contradicts her ideology as a 'trained Marxist' as she said she has invested in the properties to provide for her family and sees her wealth 'as my family's money, as well.'    Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors has responded to criticism over her property empire saying it is 'categorically untrue' and 'incredibly dangerous' to suggest...
    Knicks’ secret offensive weapon strikes again in four straight victory By: Alexander Wilson April 15, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditFor the first time this season, the New York Knicks have won four consecutive games, beating the Memphis Grizzlies, Toronto Raptors, Los Angeles Lakers, and New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday evening. Against New Orleans, the Knicks won by a 10 point margin but didn’t get the showcase they expected from point guard Lonzo Ball. Ball is an expected free-agent target for New York this upcoming off-season, and while he didn’t feature in the contest, there is a reason to believe he will be one of their top targets. Nonetheless, the Knicks didn’t take it easy on New Orleans, who entered the game with a three-game win streak themselves. In fact, in the last two games, they had scored no less than 116 points, but the Knicks limited them to just 106. Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram posted a majority of the Pelicans’ scoring production, totaling 53. As for the Knicks, the love was spread around,...
    Sex is supposed to be spontaneous, right? Nothing worse than planning sex! Whenever I suggest such a thing, the kneejerk reaction is always ‘Ewww’. But there are plenty of things you should always plan when it comes to your sex life. Carefully. Inviting another body into bed with the two of you, without it backfiring spectacularly, requires many (sober) conversations and get-out clauses for any number of possible scenarios. Deciding to drunk-dial an ex who still loves you for an impromptu booty call never ends well. Neither does enthusiastically having sex alfresco – without first checking there isn’t a child’s playground just around the corner. I’m not suggesting you stop and think before giving into all those sexy impulses (why not skinny dip when there’s no-one around?). But I am recommending you pause before doing anything that could have potentially disastrous consequences. Don’t just think, ‘Is this legal?’, think ‘Could this destroy the trust in my relationship?’ and ‘Is anyone going to get hurt from this, either physically or emotionally?’. Few of us get through life without chalking up a...
    While its neighbor is chasing a quadruple, Manchester United now has only one route to ending a four-year trophy drought. Losing 3-1 to Leicester in the FA Cup quarterfinals on Sunday leaves Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with realistically only the Europa League to produce his first trophy as United manager. United faces Granada in the quarterfinals of the Europa League. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "We didn’t have the spark tonight and it’s understandable," Solskjaer said. "They’ve been unbelievable, the last three or four months, playing every three or four days, and it’s just caught up with us — all the games, all the traveling. Thursday night in Milan took a lot out of us, today we didn’t have that extra zip. We just didn’t have enough against a good team." But with United second in the Premier League, albeit 14 points behind Manchester City, securing Champions League qualification could be the most significant achievement. It will be lucrative, too, and for Leicester, which is only a point behind United in third. But while Brendan Rodgers knows the...
    Indianapolis Colts cornerback Kenny Moore was once a member of the New England Patriots. During a short stint in New England, which lasted for about four months, Moore thought that he was done with football because it was one of the "low spots" of his life. He said he often bumped heads with his position coach, Josh Boyer, and felt like he was in the military. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "[It was] the longest four months of my life," Moore told Tyler Dunne of the "Go Long" podcast. "I thought I was done with football. My mental capacity and my mental space? I was just maxed out. "That's really when I felt like, 'I'm probably not built for the league.' And having that feeling of, 'You're not good enough,' that's a bad feeling. You feel like you don't belong," Moore added. "I lost all of my joy and passion. I didn't even want to play football. I didn't want to go to work anymore… I was depressed. I was trying to fight my way out of it."...
